When found AWAY from the nipple, this requires surgical removal to check for associated (pre)cancer.

In brief: Mass in breast

Intraductal papilloma (ip) is the most common cause of bloody nipple discharge.
It is a small mass within the duct of the breast. They are usually noncancerous but can sometimes have abnormal cells or an early breast cancer. Once diagnosed on needle biopsy, they are usually completely removed with surgery.
